If you’re seeing snow and feeling cold in your host country, then you definitely have our sympathy — it’s never easy to deal with the cold months of the year. However, if you know that you have some vacation time coming up, you might want to think about places to go that could help you break out of your cold wintry shell and into somewhere tropical and pleasing. Believe it or not, you can actually escape from the cold weather with a hot African vacation!
Of course, you will need to think about where in Africa that you want to go. Africa is a continent filled with many different countries, and many travelers often get this wrong when they’re trying to look for the best place to go within Africa to begin with.
You might think that Africa has nothing to offer, especially considering that there aren’t as many guides for Africa as there are for other parts of the world. Many people also worry that the civil wars and unrest within African nations make it a place to avoid on the whole. The reality is that there are many parts of Africa that are actually quite safe — for example, many people go down to Morocco quite often with no troubles, and they enjoy the best of African as well as Arabic culture just about any time they wish.
Even if you have chosen the country that you want to check out, you will need to think about how you want to actually set up your trip. For example, you might want to go with a nice African cruise. This gives you the ability to see certain parts of Africa without feeling like you’re completely on your own. Instead of going out on your own you will be with a group — this also gives you a built in social group that can help you build memories that will truly last for a lifetime.
There’s no reason why you can’t start out with the cruise style first, and then go for a land-based trip when you’re feeling more confident. Many people start with cruises because they’re a very luxurious way to see Africa, and the shocking news is that they are quite affordable as well.
So, if you’re tired of cold weather where you live, travel to Africa for a hot vacation — in more ways than one!
